The Extra-ordinary Friday Photo Challenge

Yesterday’s challenge was (extra) ordinary. Here is my selection. Above, the sun taken through myriad droplets of water at the fountain of the Observatory in the Paris garden of great explorers. Do not hesitate to enlarge that picture in order to view all the details.

(Extra)ordinary like these boats in Essaouira in Morocco not to name the incredible sunlight.

(Extra)Ordinary like the Medieval Cathedral in Beauvais, one of the world’s tallest, to the best of my knowledge. It’s so big that it caved in a few times and had to be rebuilt twice. To this day, buttresses have been added to hold the building together. I like the cobweb effect. In fact, one sees nothing else on that picture. This is why I chose to keep it. One of the most extraordinary stone buildings in the world and all one can see is a teensy-weensy spider.

(Extra)ordinary like Hauptbahnhof (central station) in Berlin in Germany. So huge you’d think St Pancras could be housed inside. An every day building, meant to take people from point A to point B and yet, a bit like the Cathedral above, a grandiose piece of architecture. Such is my idea of the (extra)-ordinary.
